Theme Pantoums, Perhaps?

Poems that more or less fit the form made famous by Charles Baudelaire's "Harmonie du soir," where the even-numbered lines of one quatrain become the odd-numbered lines of the next.

Insanity, Sane? Pantoum Challenge


Insanity resides in the mind of the sane
it escapes sometimes when under strain
but truely remarkable is the brain
it CAN heal despite insanity's claim.

It escapes sometimes, when under strain
it twists and turns deceiving the mind
but truely remarkable is the brain
especially when others treat people kind.

It twists, and turns, deceiving the mind
thoughts of the despicable kind,
to the truth, we are sometimes blind,
insanity resides; in the mind of the sane.

I like this pantoum very much. It kind of feels like an interesting wordplay, the way lines repeat themselves with some subtle differences.
